Download a copy of your Gmail messages 

I’m very happy to see that Google still seems committed to data portability. The ability to download all messages in mbox format means that it should always be possible to non-destructively move email out of Gmail to a different provider.

I still think FastMail is a better option, especially for power users. But with the ability to download messages in a sensible format, I don’t think there’s any urgent need to switch away from Gmail if you’re happy with it.
